VIDEO: Patrick Reed uses golf club as baseball bat after match play loss

In case you haven't noticed, Patrick Reed gets a little emotional out on the golf course. Sometimes it gets the best of him. Add in that match play has a certain way of only exacerbating how we feel in a stroke-play competition, and then you get this glorious footage.

Reed was trying to square a hole against Danny Willett in his second round-robin match in group play of the WGC-Cadillac Match Play Championship on Thursday. He didn't make the putt. Frustrated, Reed swept his ball off the green with his putter, used the putter to lob the ball in the air, then swatted it away with his putter like it was a baseball bat.

Willett went on to win 2 and 1, knocking him out of contention to move on into the knockout phase at TPC Harding Park.

Like Keegan Bradley's bag-kicking incident a few hours earlier, we show these not to lambaste the players but to show that these guys do give a hoot about the championship and sometimes can't hold in their competitive juices.
